Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Re: There is no such thing as 'The Christian Right'- they're Just Plain Wrong

To clarify
I'm a Christian! & Happy for Christ, who as the example, shows us the Way. But sad for us in the US who act as if 'an eye for an eye' trumps 'turn the other cheek,' who claim Christ's name, but don't' realize that SIN = SELFISHNESS.

I guess that it appears to me that the "Christian Right" is neither Christ-like nor correct. I'm with Gandhi, who said, “I like your Christ, I do not like your Christians. Your Christians are so unlike your Christ.”

Before that post I had just read an article that brought me to literal tears: http://www.harpers.org/archive/2005/08/0080695 "The Christian paradox: How a faithful nation gets Jesus wrong." This article talks of how much time & effort is wasted on the Rapture nonsense

BTW, please pardon me (& Bobby) if offense was taken.

If your brother or sister goes astray you are commanded to help them, Jack. Jesus didn't say this person, not that. We didn't make the rules , they are just there.
